Pelican Group originated from Hai Long Company which pioneered the first sightseeing cruise tour at Halong Bay in Vietnam in 2002.

As the beauty of the bay attracted more and more tourists, especially foreigners who wished to stay overnight on the bay, the company flashed to be also one of the pioneers to offer overnight cruise tours at the bay, with well-known Bhaya Cruise in 2005.

Seeing the stable growth of some 12% of the number of the visitors to Halong Bay each year, including more and more international tourists who wanted to have a high quality cruise experience, the brand of Pelican Group was established in 2011 with the desire of bringing visitors to Halong Bay an elite relaxing experience in modern boats in the combination of the local tradition and culture.
